The One about NEWYORK PERFECT CHEESE at Tokyo Station

For those who have gone to Tokyo Station and passed by NEWYORK PERFECT CHEESE, there is something that is consistent since the confectionery shop opened back in March 2017 and that there is always a line and it’s always packed.

The sweets were chosen by three well-known names: White House pastry chef Bill Yosses, Japan’s first cheese Chevalier Murase Miyuki and the renown French cheese MOF Cheese Craftsman, Rodolphe Le Meunier.

I tend to say that anything with the word “New York” is popular in Japan when it’s connected with food or sweets but the concept of NEWYORK PERFECT CHEESE is simple, three different confections that include cheese.

The first is a crisp biscuit known as Langues de cha which includes gouda cheese incorporated into the breading and inside Danish cheddar cheese with white chocolate.  Guess which one is the cheese and which one is the chocolate?  The block part is actually white chocolate.

5 pieces: 775 yen (tax included)
8 pieces in: 1,080 yen (tax included)
12 pieces entered: 1,620 yen (tax included)
15 pieces entrance: 2,025 yen (tax included)
18 pieces: 2,430 yen (tax included)

The other is a Cheese Escargot which is a fluffy sponge cake with cheddar cheese and wrapped with rum and vanilla.

4 pieces: 878 yen (tax included)
6 pieces: 1,166 yen (tax included)
8 pieces entered: 1,555 yen (tax included)
10 pieces entrance: 1,944 yen (tax included)

The other is the Maple Cheese which is a cheesecake made with maple syrup and Hokkaido Mascarpone cream cheese.

5 pieces: 775 yen (tax included)
8 pieces in: 1,080 yen (tax included)
12 pieces entered: 1,620 yen (tax included)
16 pieces: 2,160 yen (tax included)

NEWYORK PERFECT CHEESE is absolutely delicious! I only purchased five and then after trying a few, I went to get more but it was too late…the line was way packed and I had to leave and meet a friend.

I also wanted to bring one home to the US as they have a shelf life of a month and a half and the box packaging is absolutely gorgeous. But next time, I’ll have to pick up a box.

And it kind of bugs me because I should have gotten a photo of the actual NEWYORK PERFECT CHEESE before I opened the package and ate it but I expected to get more to take photos when I got back home, but it didn’t happen.

While Tokyo Station is packed, I tried to find the Haneda Airport shop that opened several months ago but ended up finding a confectionery place that sold everything else. So, I lucked out on getting a large box but at least I was able to try a few.

NEWYORK PERFECT CHEESE opens at 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and is closed on Friday.

Just remember to get their early and you should be able to make a purchase, otherwise be prepared to wait in line for a short while (line goes fast), but there is one caveat…the later you go, the more certain items (or number count) are unavailable. The 18 piece tends to sell out quickly, so if you want this, go in the morning
